If you frequent YouTube.com or Google Video, you’ve almost certainly seen a slew of videos in which people combine Mentos mints and Diet Coke with explosive results.

We had neither Diet Coke nor Mentos in the house, so a trip to the grocery store was in order.
- One box of Mentos mints: $1.09
- Three 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke: $3.00
